The CSI delivers High Performance and is Super Light Weight.
This all purpose mini-velo features carbon seat stay, carbon chain stay and a 20” 451 carbon monocoque fork
CSI is designed by weaving together a distinctive thin large diameter aluminium frame and beautiful carbon rear triangle.
A utility bike endorsed by riders due to its performance and sharpness because of its super lightweight body and specifications. The frame design has a common design code which is the “slant design” adopting the two narrow inclined pipes sandwiching the top tube. The silhouette of the impressive frame design not only lies in the design, but also on the unique minivelo framework that will contribute to increase the strength of the entire frame as well as the rigidity around the long head tube. High torsional rigidity due to this slant effect and low center of gravity because of the geometry plus using the strongest yet lightweight #7005 aluminium alloy series and pair it with a rear carbon triangle will create an explosive acceleration feeling and sharp handling which road bike’s cannot give. The CSI is compatible to install the Shimano Di2 electronic drive train. It’s smooth, beautiful welding and attention to detail is the perfect one for those who pursues real fun.
“Slant Tube” is when two tubes extending from the head tube to the top tube creates an exceptional beauty when viewed from the back. Furthermore, the unique shape down tube enhances the rigidity which is the uniqueness of the CSI.
The smooth welding on the aluminium 7005 frame for light weight and high rigidness requires the welding beads to be carefully polished. This attention to the smallest details is to ensure the CSI is beautifully and skilfully done.
Using carbon material for high vibration absorbing purposes on the chain and seat stay, also adds to the beauty of the CSI.
Three places around the bottom bracket are welded to increase the frame strength. The Chainstay which is fixed by a special adhesive, brings out a tremendous rigid feeling beyond imagination.
